Yesterday was the first Friday of the month and that means Friday Night with Friends over at Gone Stitchin'.   Earlier in the week  a list was made  of three items that I would like to complete during the month of August and last night I took the opportunity to finish off my origami table mat.   I saw this sometime ago on the "net" and knew that one day I would have to make one which was started a couple of weeks ago on my quilting retreat.    I put in an extra "petal" in mine as  I wanted to have a more "closed" look in the middle and not put a candle in it.  

I can see a few more of these being made using different festive fabrics.     It is quite a "labour intensive" project but well worth it.

Now that feels good having crossed one item off my list and that only leaves two to go.   Some of you who have read  my previous post know that hubs has been slowed down by a very nasty bug and he will be needing lots of R & R over the next few weeks or even months so that will give me plenty of sewing time so I maybe able to cross the other two items off the list also.

Back soon with my progress and in the meantime

 Happy sewing all

this looks very difficult to do. But it looks great. This is not flat to use as a placemate? Very interesting....

What a great idea and a fun make - it would be fun to play with fabrics for different effects too.
